The Sound and Music of Oblivion

Musikmesse 2013 coverage

I had a quite long but really great day at Musikmesse this year and this time it was less about new gear but more about meeting some old friends from the scene but also to meet and change insights with some sound designers and developers which I did not met ever before. We had great sessions about analog style distortion generation, compressor designs and oversampling, reverb culture and sound design. And finally I’ve met some cool guys like Fabien from TDR and Nico from Bigtone, just to name the two. Anyway, as always I’ve also sneaked around to catch one or another impression and highlight from the show itself and here is a little report.

Akai presented their rather new MPC stuff and I’ve checked the pads and build quality which both felt very cheap to me.

Ion Audio showed a brand new and neat turntable with direct USB connection and a slick and solid wooden made chassis. Can’t say much about the pick-up and arm, though. Price should be 750 bucks and release around June, as they say. I’ll watch the release. [Read more…]
